The Joan Miro Foundation presents A body without limits, a major exhibition sponsored by BBVA and curated by the art historian Jean-Louis Prat. It's aimed at helping us to understand the changes in the portrayal of the human body that took place in the twentieth century, a period in which the human figure ceased to be solely a portrait or a symbol of beauty and became a vehicle for expressing emotions. The exhibition contains over 80 paintings and sculptures, produced between 1900 and 2000, by 41 artists from all of the main avant-garde movements: Maillol, Schiele, Dix, Matisse, Picasso, Mir, Duchamp, Chagall, Moore, Dubuffet, Basquiat, Fischl, Tpies and Saura, among others. The works are arranged in such a way as to demonstrate by confrontation, juxtaposition or contrast the wealth of the artistic languages used in the last century as well as the individual contributions of each of the artists.
